PTO

PTO needs YOU for 2013-2014 volunteer opportunities!

We  still have many spots open for this academic year.
Everyone is encouraged to help!

Our current presidents Amy Bidlack and Alicia Ribar work outside the home and have successfully balanced professional careers, their PTO leadership commitments, and managed their own family commitments this year because of the many wonderful PTO volunteers Norwich has!  It truly is a team, no one will be overwhelmed, but you should be warned, you’ll meet new, wonderful, energetic friends!  Please consider one of the open positions.  You can find the link on our PTO web-site, our PTO Facebook Page, or by linking here:

Publishing Shop:

We need your help in our publishing shop that opens October 1. The Publishing Shop is a PTO funded room that all students can use to create book covers and then bind their school work into a ‘published book’ , complete with a dedication page! If you have a few hours each month, please contact norwichpto@gmail.com. This is a “little sibling encouraged” effort; our youngest Norwich family members love to be creative too and help at their big sibling’s school

PTO wants to connect with you!  The officers are hearing your feedback that the PTO needs to network more with parents/guardians.  Please like the “Norwich PTO” on Facebook to receive posts about upcoming events as well as requests for volunteers and donations.  Here’s the most recent post: The Hop-a-Thon Committee (event is Oct. 12, save the date!) is considering school t-shirts for the 3rd annual hop, and we are looking for business sponsors for t-shirts. Do you know of a business that might be willing to sponsor us (or perhaps a Norwich family owns a t-shirt business)? We are also looking for donations of retailer gift cards to be used as incentives for fund raising. These would ultimately be given back to the teachers for classroom purchases. If you have leads on any of these, please contact Cori via norwichpto@gmail.com. Thanks for your help - YOU are our best resource!
